Richard Kamerman

New York, NY, USA

Richard Kamerman’s artistic interest is aimed foremost on the task of magnification. Small sounds, small gestures — made large. Inconsequential events — made important. The vast difference made to a narrative by a small change in focus. Room acoustics, microphone/pickup placement, and amplification are often very important to his live construction of sound, where he places great weight on the embracing of unintended consequences – e.g. errors in translation/format conversion, bursts of feedback, power supply failures.
